Although Apple finds it completely normal
, the purple tint present on some photos taken with the iPhone 5
can be pretty annoying. The imperfection appears in the corner of the image whenever a light source is near the edge of the camera's viewfinder. Could there be a cheap and easy way to take care of it?
Photos taken without, and with camHoodie
It seems so as an Illinois-based company called Fotodiox has unveiled a case that is meant to "greatly reduce purple lens flare."
camHoodie, as the accessory is called, uses no high-tech to eliminate the problem. Rather, it just shields the camera lens with a rubber ring, which prevents light from entering from certain angles. And judging by the sample photos, camHoodie seems to live up to its maker's claims.
The accessory is available for $24,95, so anyone who is interested can check it out at its maker's web site (which is currently down for some reason, so be patient).
